Startup Weekend Vegas – Let Your Voice Be Heard!

With the help of your entrepreneurial peers and an expert panel of mentors, Startup Weekend Vegas helps you turn your bright ideas into a marketable business plan. From polishing your pitch to winning over potential investors, you learn the skills of entrepreneurship hands-on with teams of other innovators like you.

Startup Weekend Vegas is a 3-day startup experience in 3 stages:

Friday night begins with dinner and networking, then ideas are pitched in an open mic format. Attendees vote for their favorites, and from there, teams form to begin working on the top ideas. This is where your earlier networking comes in handy, because you want to build a team that has all the necessary skills and resources to achieve your goal for the weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday, your team dives deeply into the work to build out your idea. Coaches and mentors are available to help, so take advantage of their expertise!

Sunday evening is devoted to your final presentations, during which teams present their developed ideas to a panel of judges. Demo your prototypes, wow the judges, and win awards!
